Spectating at Brighton Trail Weekend will clearly be a very different experience for friends & family in comparison with a road marathon or 10k event.
However, this doesn’t mean it will be any less enjoyable or exciting for them. If you are running the marathon, your supporters can wave you off on the start line on Madeira Drive and then catch a train to Falmer Station, which is a short walk away from the Event Village in Stanmer Park. Or, they could get a taxi or bus from the city.
While much of the marathon course will be inaccessible to spectators as it is hilly and remote, on arrival there will be several places around the course they can see you through. The 10k course will be easier to spectate on within Stanmer Woods.
The Event Village will be located in the magnificent Stanmer Park Estate, where supporters can enjoy excellent food, drink, shopping, activities and live music. This will be a fantastic place to sit and wait for you to finish your event either with a picnic or enjoying what is on offer.
We will issue full spectator details to all runners, with maps and best spots for cheering from on the course closer to the event.
